Scale events — like online sales and digital product launches — present great revenue opportunities, but they also present large risks to your business. Whether you are a retailer preparing for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, or a digital vendor launching a new service, your brand is both at its most visible and its most vulnerable during these scale events. Many more customers visit your site over a short period of time, raising the potential for resource constraints and discovery of software bugs. Information about issues spreads quickly via social media and news outlets. And, your customers typically spend more per transaction, so every lost order has a greater negative impact on your bottom line.
Site reliability engineering (SRE) can help you better prepare for scale events through an iterative cycle of data-driven improvement.
